A resume is the most important professional asset for a job search, and everyone seems to have a different opinion on what works best. So, how do you craft a resume that gets you noticed amongst a sea of applicants? What information is most important to include, and what should it look like? What the heck is an Applicant Tracking System, and how do I "beat the bots" (hint: that's a myth).
Join career strategist and coach Amy Santee for live feedback on real UX researcher resumes from current practitioners and people transitioning from academia and other fields. Based on insights from her work with successful job seekers, Amy will set the record straight (in a candid and caring way) on how to effectively talk about your experience, skills, and impact, and dispel common myths and misinformation.
**Please note that by sending in your resume for this event, you consent to having it shared publicly (with all personal info removed) during the event and via recording.

Alternative Analysis: Analyzing Data to Make UX and Product Decisions
Analysis and synthesis are key to reducing piles of data into powerful insights and motivating the consumers of our research to act on what we learn. Our end goal is to impact the bottom line. But how do we analyze the data to help make actual, informed product decisions? UXR is often brought in or consulted on this topic yet many don't know how to help! Join us to learn about different approaches to ensure your results yield meaningful and actionable product decisions. Takeaway tools, templates, frameworks, triangulation techniques, and get inspired to roll up your sleeves in new ways. We’ll also cover lesser-known and leveraged thematic content analysis tactics and formats, 2x2 frameworks to build on affinity diagramming, and touch on mind mapping, search log analysis, spectrum analysis, and discuss the difference between findings and insights.
